Last year, British model Charli Howard made waves when she stood up to her modelling agency. The 25-year-old took to Facebook, writing, "that she was leaving the body-shaming agency ASAP, telling the agency, “the more you force [models] to lose weight and be small, the more designers have to make clothes to fit our sizes, and the more young girls are being made ill. It’s no longer an image I choose to represent.” Howard moved to work with a new agency, MUSE Management, and it’s there she met French plus-size model and body-positive blogger Clémentine Desseaux, 28.
And now, they’re taking a stand together. The two teamed up to create a powerful video and editorial campaign that launches today called All Woman Project. It’s mission: To push back on the lack of diversity in the modelling industry and to show that women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful, sans retouching.
